Bramley are once again delighted to be able to offer for sale an ex-Royal Household car with a fabulous history.
OU16XVH was first registered on the 1st of March 2016 to Jaguar Land Rover Ltd, at their International Fleet Department, as so many vehicles are.
It was prepared by the Land Rover Workshop at Gaydon and would have been equipped with covert lighting and police emergency lighting, along with specially adapted fixed side steps - which are not available for general sale as they have not been homologated and additional grab handles to the rear passenger compartment to enable Her Majesty The Queen to be able to access the rear passenger compartment more comfortably. The rear entertainment screens were also removed prior to the car being handed over to the Royal Household and were refitted once the vehicle had been removed from service.
These items have since been removed following the vehicle being taken out of Royal Service, but the grab handles used by Her Majesty were left with the car, a lovely touch. The warning sticker for the siren, which was located in the engine compartment also remains, as a hint to this Range Rover's previous life.
Whilst in service with the Royal Household, it received two services by JLR, as opposed to the Land Rover dealer network, the first being its PDI on the 05/03/2016 at 26 miles, followed by a 12-month service on the 18/05/2017 at 2,413 miles.
This particular example covered a very low mileage and had covered only 2,586 miles when it was sold through the Land Rover Dealer Network under the Land Rover ‘Approved’ scheme.
This vehicle made a very high-profile appearance during President Obama's state visit to the United Kingdom in 2016.
On the 22nd of April 2016, Prince Philip, who was accompanied by Her Majesty The Queen, drove it to meet President Obama and the First Lady as they stepped off Marine One after it landed in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
It is perhaps one of the few occasions that President Obama would have travelled in a vehicle, other than one of his heavily armoured Presidential limousines.
Once the Queen and Prince Philip had welcomed the President and First Lady to Windsor, Prince Philip then drove them to Windsor Castle.
For many years the Royal Family have used Range Rovers, Land Rover being Royal Warranty holders.
Land Rovers and Range Rovers that have seen service with the Royal Household normally always have the vehicle registration numbers changed once out of service, this is so that the vehicle's prior use can never be confirmed, however, this example still retains its original registration number, that being OU16 XVH, making it a unique opportunity to acquire a Range Rover with undisputed Royal and Presidential provenance.
